The features on glacially polished rock are called
"striations". They are not really comprable.
Some pictures are:
1. Glacial Striations near Gullfoss
2. glacial striations
3. Glacial Striations
"Striations are usually multiple, straight
parallel lines which represent the movement
of the sediment loaded base of the glacier
over. Striae can range from microscopic size
on a seemingly polished rock to obvious
markings millimeters deep and nearly a
meter in length."

5. glacial straiations in "Ice Age Module"
